"Ann Arbor is a complex, fruit-
ful place, full of varied activities
at a high cultural level," he said.
"But, the things of permanence
that I love here I sometimes want
to get away from."
"My background is one that is
familiar with movement," Prof.
Edel explained. "Although I lived
in New York, I concertized a great
deal and now miss the freedom and
delights of travel."
Born in Yonkers, N.Y., Prof.
Edel received his musical educa-
tion at New York's Manhattan
School of Music. He continued his
studies in Europe under Andre
Hekking and Diran Alexanian.
He made his c'oncert debut in
New York's Steinway Hall in 1925,
and three years later made his
chamber music debut in Town Hall
with the Manhattan Quartet. He
toured Europe and the United
States with the Quartet from 1928
He first came to the University
in 1943 as part of a trio group. Aft-
insight and greater perspective.
er a two-year position as a cham-
ber music and orchestral perform-
er on a New York radio station, he
again made concert appearances at
In 1946 he became professor of
violon cello here, after a teaching
career in New York, New Jersey,
Massachusetts and Utah.
While on campus, he has been ac-
tive in numercus musical groups,
notably the Stanley Quartet. He has'
been a member of the Quartet
since its inception in 1947 and has
remained with them ever since.
Quartet concerts for 1954-55 have
been scheduled for only the first
semester, although the usual pro-
gram of 25 concerts will be per-
formed this semester.
Prof. Edel has also been Board'
of Directors chairman of the Arts
Theatre, chairman of the music
school's scholarships and awards
program and president of the mich-
igan chapter of the American
String Teachers Association.

"We're having a movie in class
today!" generally comes as a wel-
come break from the usual lecture.
Any department of the University
as well as various campus groups,
Michigan schools, and state organ-
izations has access to 3,084 film
titles through the services of the
Audio-Visual Education Center.
Operating on the idea that "pic-
tures speak louder than words,"
the Center includes its functions in
three major areas: distribution of
audio-visual materials, production
and educational services.
Students in foreign countries in-
cluding Canada, Guatemala, Pak-
istan, and the Philippines and
throughout the United States have
taken advantage of the more than
8,000 prints of motion pictures
The Center has facilities for the
production of 16-millimeter silent
and sound pictures, filmstrips, re-
cordings, and exhibits.
Last year 500 speech students
making use of these facilities, had
the opportunity to see themselves
perform in sound motion pictures.
The project may be tried again
in the future.
Films in Productiton
According to Director Ford L.
Lemler, one of the major produc-
tions now under way is a color
film "Locks of Sault Ste. Marie"
to be used in connection with the
Soo centennial celebration.
A film on the care and treatment
of cleft-palate children has been
made in connection with the speech
clinic and a film strip on Parlia-
mentary Rules of Procedure is be-
ing produced in collaboration with
Prof. Frederick G. Stevenson of
the School of Education.
Thousands of words are made un-
necessary by the Center's chart
and graph service. An instructor
or an organization may have a va-
riety of communication devices
such as posters, charts, maps, car-
toons, diagrams, exhibits and other
visual symbols custom-made to suit
their educational purpose.
Literature drama, music and
guidance receive a new twist when
presented on TV and radio right
in the classroom by means of the
Center's new kinescopes and the
more than 300 tape recordirgs of
Benefit from audio-visual serv-
ices presupposes a knowledge about
them. Thus the Center distributes
information about audio-visual ma-
terials and methods. Members of
its staff offer their services through
formal course work given in the
School of Education and off campus
through the Extension Service. Nu-
merous conferences, workshops,
and faculty meetings are also de-
voted to audio-visual methods.
Problems seldom remain un-
solved when taken to the field
service maintained by the Center
for consultation. The Center staff
will aid in the selection, purchase
and use of audio-visual equipment
and materials, and help edit and
construct films and film strips.
"Always a good show" and "serv-
ice when you want it" could be con-
sidered the mottos of the Center.
All materials are critically select-
ed to meet the needs of an impor-
tant educational purpose and are
screened and evaluated by staff
members or by teacher commit-
tees. Fast service is guaranteed
by the liberal purchase of dupli-
cate prints of films which are in
The Center is rapidly expanding
and increasing its services to meet
the new emphasis being put on "en-
joyment in learning" through au-

sored activities for the seven days prior
to the beginning of a final examination
period. Final examinations for the pres-

the Christmas holidays.

during the regularly scheduled hours
on the Fridays before Christmas and

and department will operate with a
skeleton force, and staff members who
are off on the Fri. before Christmas
will work on the Fri, before New Years
and vice versa.
